Zine Review:

Foerster

I open up this full-sized, newsprint zine and am not sure what to expect. A photo of a rat, followed by many more pages of rats, and finally (not to spoil it) a rat head squished in a trap. Now I’m not sure what to think. After that, stills from videos of punk shows, then full page photos of fraying blank patches. No text to explain. The next issue starts with more blank patches, and the only text in here is a reprint of a bad review from Maximum Rock n Roll, which criticizes the zine maker for joking about rape. I am cringing, even though I haven’t seen it. These zines are simple, aesthetically pleasing, and interesting if not a little weird, but that cringe stays with me. (Sarah Evans)
